A classic Bordeaux style blend, our Del Rio Claret is an elegant composition of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec and 5% Cabernet Franc. Complex and rich, with deep flavors of red raspberry and ripe strawberry flavors, with herbal elements of thyme and rosemary. Framed with toasty oak notes and balanced tannins that provide structure for this rich and elegant blend. Intricately designed for enjoyment now or to be cellared for aging.
Each of the four varietals comprising the Claret; Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Cabernet Franc are processed, fermented and barrel aged separately. Our Bordeaux wines are all barrel aged for 15 months in 95% French oak and 5% American oak, of which 30% is new oak. After barrel aging our winemaking team crafts the perfect blend, using the four grapes as building blocks to a complete a delicious masterpiece.
